Rapsodo Pitching Evaluations
Looking to develop the perfect pitch?
We are extremely excited to announce the arrival of our brand new devices, Rapsodo Pitching 2.0 and Rapsodo Insight Camera. Rapsodo Pitching 2.0 provides instant data on pitch velocity, spin rate, true spin rate, spin axis, and spin efficiency as well as strike zone analysis, horizontal and vertical break, 3D trajectory, and release information.
Whereas Rapsodo Insight is our high speed, slow-motion camera that allows us to capture how each pitch is being released straight from the hand. This device will allow our coach to easily recognize how each pitch is being released and what type of mechanical adjustments need to be made.
